    Been hearing on several websites the problem is they dont hold a charge.
    And they go bad fast. This is in a marine application. Couldnt imagine how short the lifespan would be in a SPL application lol

    Not trying to knock your experience or opinion, Just need something extremely reliable as I have no money to spare

    Here ya go


    Lasted over Five Years !
    By R. D. Heath - October 17, 2012
    I purchased an Excide Orbital AGM Deep Cycle Marine battery over six years ago. I just replaced it with the same battery. Throughout (and beyond) its expected lifetime, this sealed cell met or exceeded its published specifications.

    These are expensive batteries, but five years of service for a maintance-free, auxillury equipment battery - equates to a very good value in my book. I needed a battery for inside a 4x4 camper shell, where I occasionally sleep. One would be ill advised to install a fume-laden, wet lead-acid cell in a sleeping area, particularly given the off-road use of this vehicle.

    I don't know why the other reviewers had problems with this battery. --
    * Did they use this deep-cycle battery for an application appropriate for its design?
    * Did they use a regulated 3 or 4 stage charger, suitable for deep cycle cells?
    * Did they just hook it up to an automobile alternator (designed to charge a starting battery), instead of a purpose-built battery combiner? Note: Even most isolators are built for wet cell batteries.
    * Did they limit charging voltage to 14.2, as is customary for AGM batteries?
    * Did they limit load cycling to above 50% capacity (~11.5v)?

    This is not a battery to use for starting an engine. I primarily used mine to power an Engel Fridg/Freezer, computers, camera battery chargers ...

    Over the past year (well beyond a four or five year lifetime one might expect), the Orbital has not held a charge well. Although, for the past two years it was not maintained well, due to unavoidable neglect. If I had maintained it better, maybe it would still be usable today.

    Maybe the Orbital I just bought won't last as long as the one I bought in 2006. If I use and maintain it properly, it ought to come close.

    Do your homework. Wet cell, lead acid deep cycle batteries are fairly forgiving of standard charging procedures. VRLA, Absorbed Glass Mat cells (deep-cycle, starting, or dual purpose) provide the benefit of enhanced safety (over wet cells) - yet, they require a suitable charging system and adherence to proper maintance,

    Re: School me on batteries

    That review kind of summed it up for me
    "This is not a battery to use for starting an engine. I primarily used mine to power an Engel Fridg/Freezer, computers, camera battery chargers"

    So whoever wrote this review wasnt using it to its full or even half of its potential.
    I need something to handle powaaa! lol
